Dentures Leicester

Modern dentistry has come so far that we can now replace the entire tooth, including the root, with innovative treatments like dental implants. However, dentures are still a very effective treatment for patients who want to restore missing teeth. The most recent improvements in denture treatments mean that you can have secure, comfortable, well-fitted dentures that look and function so naturally that others will not be able to tell you have dentures at all.Our dental surgery is incredibly proud of the denture fitting and production process we provide, helping patients restore their smile and the confidence that goes with these excellent treatment results.

Replacing missing teeth to protect your smile

Patients may feel that leaving missing teeth as they are is the best option, particularly if the gaps are placed towards the back. However, this approach can be incredibly problematic moving forward, leading to various dental issues as a result.
The potential consequences of leaving missing teeth alone include:

  • Natural teeth can move and shift causing crooked teeth.
  • Tooth decay and gum disease can become more of a risk with crooked teeth.
  • Jawbone loss will eventually occur when teeth are missing, although this will still happen with dentures unless they are supported by implants.
  • You may experience pain in your jaw as your bite changes because your teeth are shifting.
  • You may speak differently.
  • You may find that eating is more difficult.
  • Your smile aesthetic is likely to be affected.

It is really important to replace missing teeth and high-quality dentures from 33 Dental can replace one tooth or several depending on your needs.

How can dentures benefit you?

Modern dentures are comfortable and secure, as well as being extremely natural-looking. Following a denture treatment with us, your smile could improve dramatically, taking years off your appearance and hopefully improving your confidence too.

When you come to 33 Dental Practice for dentures you can expect benefits such as:

  • A Great Fit – We use a very detailed process to fit your dentures with precision, for optimum comfort.
  • Attention To Your Bite – We pay attention to your denture fitting to ensure your bite is perfect with the eventual result. This stops your dentures being less secure, and makes your dentures even more comfortable and functional.
  • Beautiful Aesthetics – Our latest denture treatments are refined to ensure the teeth you are left with look just like real teeth or usually, better.
  • Anti-ageing effects – The denture treatment we provide does enhance your smile, but it also enhances your entire aesthetic because it helps restores the structure of the face.
  • Confidence-boosting – Missing teeth or dentures that are not fitted properly can deplete confidence, and by providing high-quality tooth restoration and excellent fitting, we can restore your smile, and hopefully your confidence too!

What are the different types of dentures?

At our professional clinic we offer various denture types to suit your individual needs. We currently offer:

  • Complete Dentures – To replace entire arches of teeth.
  • Partial Dentures – To replace one or a few missing teeth.
  • Same Day Dentures – Provided as an emergency treatment when a tooth has been knocked out or extracted and you wish to maintain a complete smile.
  • Implant-retained Dentures – For complete dental restoration to maintain the integrity of the jaw bone, and to provide the most secure dentures available.

Which treatment is right for you depends on your budget, needs, expectations and current oral health status. We offer a detailed consultation to ensure that our patients get all the information they need to make an informed decision about their treatment choices.

Complete dentures

A full denture will be fitted if all your upper or lower teeth need to be removed or you’re having an old complete denture replaced.
The denture will usually be fitted as soon as your teeth are removed, which means you won’t be without teeth. The denture will fit snugly over your gums and jawbone.

But if you have dentures fitted immediately after the removal of several teeth, the gums and bone will alter in shape fairly quickly and the dentures will probably need relining or remaking after a few months. Occasionally, your gums may need to be left to heal and alter in shape for several months before dentures can be fitted.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is designed to fill in the gaps left by one or more missing teeth. It’s a plastic, nylon or metal plate with a number of false teeth attached to it.

It usually clips onto some of your natural teeth via metal clasps, which hold it securely in place in your mouth. It can easily be unclipped and removed.
Occasionally, the clips can be made of a tooth- or gum-coloured material.

How to clean your dentures

It’s important to regularly remove plaque and food deposits from your dentures.
This is because unclean dentures can also lead to problems, such as bad breath, gum disease, tooth decay and oral thrush.
Clean your dentures as often as you would normal teeth (at least twice a day: every morning and night).
You should:

  • brush your dentures with toothpaste or soap and water before soaking them to remove food particles.
  • soak them in a fizzy solution of denture-cleaning tablets to remove stains and bacteria (follow the manufacturer’s instructions).
  • brush them again as you would your normal teeth (but don’t scrub them too hard).

Denture adhesive

If your dentures fit properly, you shouldn’t necessarily need to use denture fixative (adhesive).
But if your jawbone has shrunk significantly, adhesive may be the only way to help retain your dentures.

Our dedicated team at 33 Dental Practice is proud to offer high-quality dentures for optimum smile and functional restoration. We have the latest technology and fitting processes in place to provide you with the natural, comfortable and secure dentures you need to smile with confidence again.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
